This will be quick. An illegal immigrant has been arrested sexual abuse of a 14 year old. I heard about this on radio news and found an article at Deseret News. I understand that he has had an immigration hold placed on him and ICE is involved.
Here is a snippet:
A 22-year-old Provo man is being held in the Utah County Jail while the police investigate his alleged involvement in harboring a 14-year-old female runaway, having unlawful sex with her, supplying her with alcohol, possession of forged writings and identity theft.
…police found two resident identification cards as well as two Social Security cards. The numbers on the cards were linked to people other than the man..
As usual, identity theft is involved. However, identity thieves don’t have much to worry about when it comes to finding work in Utah. The Senate bill (SB 81) that begins to deal with identity theft use in employment was delayed until 2009 and may be vetoed by Governor Huntsman or gutted by legislators after re-election. Additionally, SB 81 is very limited as it would only effect businesses that contract with the State (all other businesses are still free to hire all stripes of identity thieves, including illegal immigrants). For more on SB 81 click here, ID theft post can be found here and all posts on illegal immigration can be found here.
Finally, this story also turned up:
Police say the man, who was living in Santaquin, helped his 15-year-old girlfriend [conception occurred when she was 14] run away to Mexico while she was pregnant with their child.
…the two were taken into custody by U.S. Customs agents at the border near Yuma, Ariz. The girl was reunited with her parents and he was held in Arizona until his arrival in Utah…
I assume they involve the same person.
